Zeus Virus in FireFox on Ubuntu Mate 16.04


I just did a fresh install of mate a couple days ago.

I typed in craigslist.org and hit enter and got this.

Had to kill firefox with xkill.

Sure, contact Microsoft right away. Seriously, this is just a stoopid popup, there is nothing wrong with your Linux. You may consider no-script extension for your Firefox.

Good eye Emerson!

Also, generally speaking out the side of my neck,
Zeus is not a "virus" but malware. Important Distinction, I think.
And I would expect that a 'real' PSA from MS would articulate that also.

The English is also a bit dicky (initial capitalisation as in German, missing pronouns etc.), another sure-fire sign. Although I have to admit that it's not as bad as some I've seen, and also difficult to spot for a person who doesn't have a fairly good grasp of English.
